Re: Oasis construction update Oct 3rd

I just hope that whatever replaces the 49ers Cafe has better food! I ate there two or three times and it was not very good. Even a simple burger! Yet very expensive. For lunch, you were better off going to the Inn. Where for a couple more bucks you could have a good meal in a lovely setting. :cool:

Re: Hill 254

So I'm not sure if I should put this on my peaks list as 254 feet, or 280+ feet. :biggrin: I don't suppose you brought a GPS with you, which would have given you an independent reading? Unfortunately not, LOL. :smile: BTW, that is a fairly signficant difference (254 vs. 280+). Did surveying accurac...

Thanksgiving dinner at Amargosa Cafe in DV Junction

I recently inquired by telephone and was told that the Amargosa Cafe (at the Amargosa Hotel) in Death Valley Junction will be serving Thanksgiving dinner this year, starting at 5:00 PM. As of right now, this hasn't been announced on their website or facebook accounts. IIRC, last year they didn't ann...

Hill 254

Regarding "Hill 254", I did a little research. Turns out it was so named, because that hilltop is marked with a spot elevation of 254 feet on the Stoveipipe Wells 15-minute map. However, on the Grotto Canyon 7.5 minute quad map, the same hilltop "summit" appears to be above 280 feet. I'm interpolati...

Gonna post it on the Death Valley Talk board
Hopefully you will also share it here!

Nothing against DV Talk, but a long, detailed report with lots of photos (what I'm hoping for!) will be harder to read in the format on that board. JMHO.

... It will probably be a unique opportunity to visit Mosaic without it being full of people I guess!
Maybe time for me to make a return visit! :lol: It's been a few years since I hiked up there.

Re: Death Valley weather

Agreed, the 1913 low temperatures in that chart look way off. Especially when you contrast them to the lows over the last week or so. And moreso when you look at the information in that article, comparing the FC readings to other data points. Having said that though, last October I spent a couple of...

Re: Death Valley weather

For my part, living here in Vegas, I'm ready for a break from these "excessive" temperatures! Supposedly the "excessive heat warning" ends this evening. But forecast highs will still be 105+ as far out as the NWS forecast goes. I think I'm ready for a break, maybe I should go up to the White Mountai...
